Safer Harlow Partnership

Safer Harlow Partnership logoThe Safer Harlow Partnership (SHP) is the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) for Harlow - a statutory partnership of organisations and groups working together to reduce crime, disorder and the misuse of drugs in the town. It is led by the responsible authorities Harlow Council, Essex Police, Essex County Council, Essex County Fire & Rescue Service, West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group and Essex Community Rehabilitation Company (Probation), but includes many other local bodies such as Safer Places, Victim Support, Streets2Homes, Home Group Ltd and Neighbourhood Watch.

Harlow is part of the West Essex Local Policing Area, along with Epping Forest, Brentwood and Thurrock.
